Started off with a cucumber martini at the piano bar with both the martini and music being fantastic. Bartender was very friendly. The place has just been enlarged and renovated which is very nice. This was our first visit to this establishment. It appears to be a place to come for a good time. A bit noisy but people were... More

One of the oldest restaurants in Atlantic city. Great fresh seafood and outstanding service. Reservations are a must. Valet parking at the door. Always a good meal.

We stopped in right after their renovation, and it's beautiful! We enjoyed an early dinner, sampling all of the oysters available. Although the server did not know much about each one, we did enjoy her enthusiasm about the other recommendations on the menu.

The seafood here is by far the best around. We haven't had a chance to go there since the renovations and are excited to try back again! What a gem in Atlantic City!

Don't know what it looked like before, but the decor looks great. It dates back to 1897 and owned by the same family . Oyster's are not my favorite But seafood is high on my list. I enjoyed my meal. .

Solid seafood restaurant with old time ambiance. A large, boisterous place that somehow adds to the restaurants charm. Enjoyed the Manhattan clam chowder that was made with clams still in the shell. Stay away from the crab meat cocktail as it is expensive and rather sparse. Certainly a place to visit while you are in Atlantic City. Large menu selection... More
